Abstract

Optical trapping of dielectric microparticles is reported using an optical tweezers based on two original chemically etched fiber nanoantenna. The nanoantenna converts Gaussian beam into nondiffracting type quasi-Bessel beam, which is used in trapping microparticles. Stable trapping in three distinct positions is observed for an antenna distance of 32.5 μm and for light powers as low as 1.3 mW. Optical trapping properties are studied by applying Boltzmann statistics to the particle position fluctuations. Harmonic trapping potentials with trap stiffness of 3.5 pN μm-1 are observed. The FDTD simulation results on the antenna optics are also included to understand the trapping mechanism.
